Stormy Weather

Let's see. In the last 48 hours we've had a snowstorm (rare), lost our power (not so rare), been in a traffic accident (very minor - and it was returning from work, not for a camera battery*), and took these photos after a lovely day of freezing rain:


I have not been getting dressed. Well, yes, there ARE clothes on my person - but you know, the kind you don't give away because you need something to "paint in" or "dye your hair" in.

So these are from last week:




Eagle-eyed readers may have noticed an accessory that was supposed to be back in my mom's closet.

Ahem.

You caught me:


thrifted jacket and camisole
Citizens of Humanity jeans
BCBG heels
Nordstrom and Kenneth Cole jewelry
"borrowed" vintage Coach purse from mom's closet

*But I'm getting a new one today. Woo-hoo!

P.S. Mom, it's going back (again) today. Love you!

I think your Mom should just give you this bag. You clearly love it and it's just sitting in her closet anyway. haha. Come on, MA!

I love this outfit so much. So my style.

THIEF! Truly, I am sure you need that purse FAR more than your mum. She should be baking cookies for pete's sake (for you to put in the purse).
Love the belted blazer. Must try. Fear linebacker comments, but can't show fear.
